procedures mr. holmes may have done because we don't want to jeopardize the prosecution. i'm going to turn it over to chief oates at this point and ail remain for some questions afterwards. chief oates? >> okay. thank you, jim. we've got some other material to cover. i have new information for you with regard to the investigation. when you become aware that our suspect over the last four months had a high volume of deliveries, commercial deliveries of packages to both his work and home address, we think this begins to explain how he got his hands on all the -- the magazines and the ammunition yesterday that we talked about yesterday. we also think it begins to explain some of the materials that he had in his apartment. you know, one of the things we are processing as you might expect as law enforcement are potential defenses. what we're seeing here is evidence of i think some calculation and deliberation. so we thought we'd share that with you. we are running down all those leads. this is an example where the partnership with the fbi is so great. you know, if we find out that our suspect o
